The road seen in the picture goes from the Tatrinote cross point to Donga Ghamir known as Defense Road.— AKLM Official (@AKLM_Official) March 26, 2022
Seems like the road is awaiting a drastic accident.
We want to ask the government, should people reconstruct this road themselves too, like before? @PMOAJK @farooq_pm pic.twitter.com/JAaNqk4qL5

Day 53 at Martyr's Square Kotli
Public opinion gathering hasn't quite finished yet.
We love learning something new every day, however minute it may appear at the moment.
It was Britain versus Russia pre 1947, then the Brits gave us India and Pakistan and now we have China and America to contend with too, in JKA:
On this day in 1931, Indian revolutionary Bhagat Singh and his comrades Sukhdev Thapar and Shivaram Rajguru were hanged for fighting against British imperialism. They reportedly chanted “Down with British Imperialism” while marching towards the gallows. pic.twitter.com/L2MC8SUlzA— redfish (@redfishstream) March 23, 2022
For the love of Pakistan in AJK:
#یوم_پاکستان کے موقع پر پاکستان کے زیر انتظام کشمیر میں عظیم الشان ریلی نکالی گئی ، یہ مناظر نظریہ کشمیر بنے گا پاکستان کی بہترین عکاسی کر رہے ہیں pic.twitter.com/d4A9jDQm1o— Usman Tariq Chughtai (@UsmanTariqUSK) March 23, 2022
We can then compare the above with the following State-sponsored propaganda event to boost the occupier's morale in Bhimber, at the cost of the AJK taxpayer:

The following Urdu post (a character reference about me essentially) written by Shafqat Inqalabi of Ghizer in Gilgit Baltistan appears to have been no-platformed by Facebook, after written complaints we understand:
تنویر احمد کے جدو جہد کو سلام https://t.co/Jw3gvSJj0k Facebook have disallowed this Urdu post about me after complaints— Tanveer Ahmed (@sahaafi) March 17, 2022
Meanwhile, the second 'AJK Government' sponsored 'Kashmir Conference' provided the following 'empty' spectacle to the rest of the world, from Muzaffarabad. What is bogus is bogus:
میرےخیال سےتصویروں پرتبصرےکی ضرورت نہیں ہےتصویریں خودبول رہی ہیں؟مگرپھربھی یہ کہناچاہوں گاکہ تمام ترحکومتی وسائل کوبروۓکارلانےکےباوجود،کالجوں یونیورسٹیوں سےطلبا۶ کوزبردستی لانےکےباوجودریلی وجلسےمیں لوگوں کاشرکت نہ کرنااس بات کاثبوت ہیکہ عوام نےآپکواورآپکی سوچ الحاق کومستردکردیاہے pic.twitter.com/PCtljvnBEH— Akmal Jarall (@aakmaljarall) March 17, 2022
Piotr Balcerowicz's analysis of the Russia-Ukraine War in a global context:
Professor Piotr of Poland is a political scientist of global repute, an expert in many fields including covering global conflict zones from ground zero: Be it Uzbekistan to Palestine, from the Panjsher to Dadyaal to Tibet to Urumqi and the list is endless...
I have multiple honours in being his host in JKA, he has been following my action-oriented research work for almost a decade now, he has also become a precious friend and global compass guide to me, amongst many other affiliations and attributes.
His words can be taken as an 'authority' in their own right.
AJK PUBLIC AGENCY NOTE: EU 1724-17032022
From AJK to JKA
(Roman Urdu) Azad Jammu Kashmir se Jammu Kashmir wa muttahida ilaaqajaat.
When 99% of the whole population of JKA will directly benefit from the 'Public Policy Workshop' at Martyr's Square Kotli, why would we tolerate a judge from elsewhere?
(Roman Urdu) Jab 99% awaam raazi to kyou karey qabool Shaheed Chowk Kotli me koi aur Qazi?

State aggression in AJK will now almost always meet a reaction in the UK, as the following examples suggest:

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 75 of 2022
This is almost identical to how the majority of inhabitants of Jammu Kashmir & Allied areas #JKA #JandK feel about #China #India #Pakistan #UK #USA We stand with you and with all the women of mother earth in solemn solidarity. A sentiment from #DhartiMaa in #Kotli #AJK https://t.co/UTfDoH3WlQ— Tanveer Ahmed (@sahaafi) March 16, 2022
The following negativity was also spread during my most recent incarceration:
Re translate: You wish you didn't care and you wish no one else cared either. Thank you for taking the time to guide us.— Tanveer Ahmed (@sahaafi) March 16, 2022
It is through such sly and pernicious tactics that many an activist in the past and present has been prevented from sustaining public interest. In such slavish societies as AJK, perceptions matter much more than reality.
After Letter 1 to the UK government sent out on the 2nd of February 2022, today is time to send out Letter 2 to the UK government, building on our experiences in the interim.
A list of 30 UK MPs (out of a target of 100) engaged thus far:

5 nights in Kotli jail. An 81 hour hunger strike. Released a few hours ago. Plenty of strategic food for thought.
Struggle till freedom comes.
رہائی مبارک ہو @sahaafi صاحب۔۔ pic.twitter.com/AlpGvDk9Nl— Waheeda Kashmiri (@KashmiriWaheeda) March 16, 2022
4 days of enforced absence from the blogosphere, after almost 4 months of uninterrupted daily activity.
Many thanks to all those thousands of co-citizens who played their part, from all over the world:
تنویر احمد کو بلاجواز قید میں رکھنا ایک بار پھر اس بات کو ثابت کر رہا ہے کہ نام نہاد آزاد کشمیر کی انتظامیہ ISI کی کٹھپتلی بن چکی ہے۔— Team JKLF (@TeamJKLF) March 14, 2022

This audio message was vital and crucial:

To the bludgeoned spirit of 11 year old Kanwal Matloob....We will not rest till your rapist(s) and butcher(s) are not punished:
Why did police arrested @sahaafi just after he started printing banner for #KanwalMatloob ?— AKLM_0FFICIAL_URDU (@AKLM_0FFICIAL) March 11, 2022
Why did police raided the house and lodged FIR on journalist @WaqarBagga when he questioned police for Kanwal?
Why does police wants to save Kanwal's second killer?#ReleaseTanveerAhmed pic.twitter.com/5SSgUK6gyf
Media intervention was crucial too:

It is an absolute a deplorable act on part of AJK police and the ISI, at the behest of Pakistani authorities, to arrest and detain freedom and independence activists of #JammuKashmir, including Tanveer, due to their peaceful and none violent activities.— mohammed asif khan (@mohamme29199879) March 10, 2022
Tanveer Ahmed (@sahaafi) has been detained once again by the @AJKP_Official. Tanveer is the one of the most resilient & vocal voices from Pakistan administered Kashmir and his detention is a desperate attempt at silencing such voices.@SarahOwen_@SecKermani#Release_Raja_Tanvir— 🍁 Azhar Ahmed 🍁 (@ahm3d711) March 10, 2022
Impressive wording and imagery:
بے گناہ تنویر احمد کی گرفتاری کی بھرپور مذمت کرتے ہیں۔— AKLM_0FFICIAL_URDU (@AKLM_0FFICIAL) March 10, 2022
جائز مطالبات ماننے کے بجائے گرفتار کرنا ظلم ھے بربریت ھے۔

Solidarity has always been from the deepest south of AJK to the remotest north of AJK. Here's a latter example from the Neelam Valley:
@sahaafi— Naseer Ahmed Mir (@NaseerAhmedMir7) March 10, 2022
Other important links to activism in AJK on my behalf, while I was incarcerated:
Another example from Nikyaal:
Yet another example from Nikyaal:
Solidarity and concern from the United States of America:
Solidarity and concern from the United Kingdom:
Further examples of solidarity from the UK:
Solidarity and concern from Kathua and Jammu too:
It is always re-assuring to know that our public resorts to high alert mode as soon as I am ever detained:

Incarceration also deprived me of strategic work on Gilgit Baltistan:
